Paving and patching business up and running
If you are looking for someone to patch a driveway, pave a new one or do some gravel work, there's a Madras business that can certainly help.
Central Oregon Pave and Seal, owned by Brad Watson, opened its doors in August and after Watson decided he wanted to be his own boss.
"We moved to the Madras area when my wife started working at Culver High School from the Bend area," he said. But Watson's experience with paving and sealing goes far beyond the time he has spent in Jefferson County.
"After 43 years of working in the paving industry, we decided that it would be a good idea to work for ourselves for a change," he said.
So that's what he did, opening up shop and procuring some contracts with the city to do patching work. "I want to bring some old-school values back to the paving and sealing coat industry, where customers and quality came first," he said.
"As I said I have been paving, sealing and grading since 1974," he said. "I am trying to stay in the residential and small community market by preparing and restoring driveways and small lots where root heaves cracks have literally ruined your asphalt," Watson said.
"I saw, cut and remove distressed asphalt, patch it back with new, fill cracks and seal coat the area after pressure washing the project," he said. "I also place gravel and roll base rock for those who are still driving on rock. I fix potholes and do ADA repairs."
